Bennifer 2.0 is official! Images from Jennifer Lopez’s 52nd birthday confirmed that the two are in fact dating and couldn't be more in love! TMZ reports that the pair was spotted together in a yacht as they sailed the Mediterranean in St. Tropez. Ben Affleck could be seen affectionately touching her butt. Sound familiar? That's because it's a recreated scene straight out of JLo's 2002 "Jenny From the Block" music video! The couple seemed to reminisce and rekindling their love almost 20 years later! According to The Guardian, in the song, Lopez sings that despite her success and wealth, she is still the same down-to-earth woman who grew up in Castle Hill, the Bronx. The 52-year-old croons, “Can’t forget to stay real / to me it’s like breathing”; “I stay grounded as the amounts roll in”; and “Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got / I’m still (I’m still) Jenny from the block”. The video features a bunch of footage that looks like paparazzi clips. In one of the scenes, Affleck strokes Lopez’s butt adoringly as they sail on a yacht. Talk about life coming full circle!

One Twitter fan account even pointed out Affleck was recently spotted wearing what appeared to be the same watch on the set of Lopez's music video for "Jenny from the Block." The two began dating in 2002 but called it quits in 2004 just before their wedding. Now it seems they're back in love and stronger than ever. The actress is beyond happy with Affleck, 48, according to insiders. "They are having a beautiful trip," a source told PEOPLE of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, who celebrated her 52nd birthday on Saturday at the nightclub L'Opéra in St. Tropez. "She looked gorgeous and very happy."
Retired MLB player and JLo's ex is celebrating his own 46th birthday by spending time in Europe. Few months before their respective trips, the former couple had split. They called off their engagement in April after four years together. "We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so," they said in a joint statement to PEOPLE at the time. Later that month, Lopez and Affleck began seeing each other again after his own split from Ana de Armas, 33.

As for Bennifer, despite having split nearly two decades ago it feels like time has barely passed. A source recently told PEOPLE that they are "madly in love" and they are "the loves of each other's lives." Another source added, "Even though their split many years ago was devastating for Jennifer, she has never had a bad word to say about Ben. She believes that it just wasn't meant to be then and feels like they've been given a second chance." The two are also making an effort to get to know each other's kids. "Ben is slowly getting to know [Jennifer's] kids, and his son is also spending time with Jennifer and her kids," said an insider. Affleck has three children with ex-wife Jennifer Garner: son Samuel, 9, plus daughters Seraphina, 12, and Violet, 15. Jennifer Lopez shares 13-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
